6:05 am
something we don't need her to tell a permit campaign scripting point of view. we need her to tell us why he is a softy and a good guy. she did some of that. the campaign has a lot of work to do, especially that of a potential matchup to improve his numbers with key demographic groups including women. we know he's tough. we know he's got a strong persona. i think that for the broader group of voters, they need to know more. maria: it has been a tough couple of weeks. the comments on women, fido for the wise and all this prediction. he's really had their trashier things he said. i want to ask david and i said if the crying game is catching up with them. they are starting to run into problems with the organization, the ability to go after other
6:06 am
delegates who are pledging other candidates now and they are facing real challenges in the fall. what do you think about that? >> i agree to that if you look in the fall campaign for sure and definitely wisconsin. ted cruz has the best grassroots organization of any republican candidate who had run the cycle. they do great work with the data and they know who their audiences and what their audience cares about and they do great work on the ground. ted cruz is starting to scoop up a lot of delegates loyalty among backing from the third, contested convention. one of the thing that has been fun for donald trump in a couple weeks in new york he will talk about the fact that donald trump wins doing it his way. n-november he needs to have data, a ground game and it do some old-fashioned politicking
6:07 am
if he's going to be killer content. >> that's really good analysis. the month and candidates want her more delegates. 42 up for grabs. sanders and clinton fighting for 86 pledged delegates. dagen mcdowell standing by with this action. reporter: good morning, maria. good to see you. this is where the delegate count works out for trump, cruz and kasich. 737 delegates as of today reported to a stake in wisconsin. 1237 mr. magic number. it grates are in the cover of "the wall street journal" that trump needs to win 66% or two thirds of the remaining bound delegates. those are committed to vote for a certain candidate. if he doesn't win a delegate at a delegate out of wisconsin, he needs to win 70% of the remaining delegates out there. there is no path to getting to the 1237.
6:08 am
they have to wait for the convention. 1712, a big leap here this of course includes your superdelegate who fired a committed themselves to clinton. i want to point out 2383 is the number is candidates are heading for. this is about superdelegates. she only needs 38% of the remaining delegates. donald trump has a ways to go. maria: that's what it all comes down to. we're looking at numbers today because we know there's not a clear path for john kasich. >> something i said last week on the program. i'm not a supporters so does that mean nasty e-mail. with everything that's happened to donald trump and everything thrown at him, money spent against him, everything that pat
6:09 am
and if he does anything in wisconsin at all, he shows decent numbers as they win for the candidate and a win for him. sandra: if there is a ted cruz went, to newt gingrich point, he was basically saying it's assumed that this might ted cruz will win because he's been leading the polls. winning doesn't necessarily change the race. he would have to have a landslide for this to be a big change. >> i'm not sure be that much of a surprise. if you are trying to figure out how the game is going to go last night, you would say okay i don't think that's going to happen. if you think that trump can come out of tomorrow with any type of momentum, that seems to be a
6:10 am
better dad than a landslide. >> he is trying to set exit patience yesterday he'll do that. he's heading into the friendly state in new york, pennsylvania and could do a lot better. i think he still has some organizational challenges to i thought a lot republicans would line up behind him as he came along. it's not happening publicly at all. and increasingly getting thee ca contested convention, if you can't back it up ahead of time, he will be in trouble when they get to cleveland. maria: dierker at that? >> you got wisconsin today. cruz been in wisconsin make them much more likely we have a contested dimension. that is what is significant about with constant. donald trump will win new york and a few other states. we'll talk about trump with momentum again. it won't be enough to avoid a contested convention.
6:11 am
and then we move into member states primitive cruz and possibly john kasich depending where he is. that will reset the narrative once again. we had finally to california in june and it's either going to be cruz and california or trump wins california and that will be the whole ball of? what you have to look at right now is the scenario for delegates knowing are talking about national poll numbers. miller talking about wins and losses and that is late today so we'll cordon. maria: great analysis. thanks for joining us. make sure to tune in today all day to fox business for special coverage of the wisconsin primary by 7:00 p.m. eastern on the fox is the number. stay with us. less than two hours away. a highly contested grave. no matter who wins, we will soon have a republican in the white house. we will tell you where the analysis comes from. the shot heard round the world.

6:32 am
>> large voter turnout, we will win here. if we win here we will have a bounce going into new york state where i think we can win. if we win in new york state, i don't want to get hillary clinton more nervous than she already is. maria: we will take you to wisconsin live for report coming up on the program. it is called march madness for a reason. a buzzer beater last night carrying a win for the villanova wildcats, north carolina, 77-74. it was tight. villanova students hit the streets of campus after the big victory. tennessee lawmakers looking to make the bible the official state but. officials say the move would trivialize the holy book. preventing criminal activity, if you don't have a chase account, your withdrawals would be limited. turning to markets age under pressure overnight, markets mostly lower, the nikkei average the worst performer down 2.5% as

6:34 am
rare campaign appearance and an appearance with sean hannity. >> what would you like him to change a little bit? >> tweeting, he has a great night. he can be presidential but sometimes he cannot stand someone attacking him. he sees somebody attacking him he will punch back twee 10 times harder. >> reporter: ted cruz is out front with 39% according to the latest numbers from real clear politics. trump is within striking distance at townhall with megan kelly. ted cruz answered questions about these allegations of his infidelity. >> donald, it makes him feel really tough, like a very big man to threaten people, in particular he seems to have a problem with strong women. i don't know why that is but it seems to really bother him.
6:35 am
there were no beams to spill. >> have you committed adultery? >> i have not. that attack was complete and utter garbage. >> reporter: governor john kasich is not within striking distance but he will not drop out, he is hoping to force everyone to scrap it up through the convention in cleveland. we will see how it works out by the end of the day. maria: mike tobin in wisconsin. the badger state battle may hold the key to a contested convention come july especially if donald trump fails to secure a majority of the 42 delegates that are up for grabs in wisconsin. an issue the republican front runner is all too familiar with. >> i want to be treated fairly. i'm getting far more votes than anybody. in louisiana i won the state but have less delegates than the guy i beat quite easily. what is going on? in all fairness way are way ahead in delegates but why would someone that loses have more delegates? they say there is this way. i don't care about ways.
6:36 am
i won the state. i am not supposed to have less delegates than a guy i beat. it doesn't work that way. maria: it is working that way. former scott walker campaign advisor and republican strategist, good to see you. bernie sanders is making the same argument, he is getting the popular vote but doesn't have a delegates have hillary clinton has. >> bernie has more of an argument because of the superdelegates. trump has gotten 37.6% of the popular vote so far, 45% of the delegates was whining about the process when the process has played in his favor is just that, whining. maria: that is why wisconsin is so important. when he comes back to the northeast states it is very expected he will get lots of delegates in places like new york. maria: we were watching townhall, ted cruz, megan kelly
6:37 am
and scott walker sat down in full support of ted cruz last night. is ted cruz in his campaign, i they making the most of what donald trump described as the worst week yet in this election? >> very much so. a lot has been made about the last week. the fact of the matter is what we are seeing in wisconsin is donald trump is upside down, he has been there for several weeks. the public polls show that. it is a reaction particularly to married republican women being very negative about his approach, his persona, his character. that was baked in before we got to the last week so this is coming home to roost. there is more solidifying there but one of the interesting things about wisconsin is we are seeing married men with children
6:38 am
turning negative towards trump, they are having to explain to their children why this bullish in-your-face approach of trump that they tell every day is not the way to be -- maria: i gave you a platform to talk about ted cruz and scott walker. i want to challenge you on ted cruz. a victory in wisconsin is a victory for ted cruz in wisconsin or does he have to win by a landslide for this to be changing of the guard? >> this is wisconsin. the thing to watch for tonight if trump walks out of wisconsin with less then ten delegates it is a huge victory for ted cruz but more importantly they went from saying they were going to win two weeks ago to saying they are going to win several days ago, at least half the delegates looking at even less than that. with this, assuming a victory for ted cruz at this point trump
6:39 am
would have to win numb 100% of all delegates between now and june 7th and would not get the top so this race is going at a minimum for him. maria: how well is ted cruz owing to do in northeastern states? places like new york? >> that is the point. this race will go all the way at a minimum. as long as this race goes, the more trump has to be the persona of winning this campaign the more likelihood these negatives he started with high negatives will continue to increase as we have seen in recent months. maria: good to speak with you. thanks for joining us. don't miss "varney and company" at 9 am on the east coast, special guest, katrina pearson will join stuart varney. tune into foxbusiness for special coverage of the wisconsin primary picking up at 7:00 pm eastern tonight on the

iraq and, the production they make, there is little production around, not just one place so that has to clear and demand has to catch up but there is a large amount of inventory. that grows daily and before we see any response that has to clear as well. we have to be very patient if we want to see an uptick in price. when it is impossible to tell. >> at the end of last year they said we would see major bankruptcies and restructuring in the first quarter. in april we did not see it. why haven't these companies that don't have the right cost of capital in terms of commodity prices, why they still survive? >> a lot of equity issuances, a problem with restructuring. it is a lag between what is needed to restructure the industry and what actually happens. it will take time and in my view the time will come in the middle

7:04 am
>> in wisconsin let me point out the media has been saying for weeks and weeks that wisconsin was not going to be a good state for us, this was a natural state for donald trump, wisconsin was a purple blue state, wisconsin, there were not many evangelicals here, heavily manufacturing blue-collar state. i can't tell you how many media analysts i heard they donald trump is going to run away with with confidence and -- wisconsin. >> reporter: 86 delegates will be awarded tonight and polling suggests this will be another tight state in the midwest between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. sanders has done well in this area, west of minnesota and east of michigan and being competitive all around in iowa and illinois. the headline into today, you have the two front runners, donald trump and hillary clinton potentially staring down tonight in wisconsin. maria: a big night, thank you so

7:06 am
is she going to be doing more campaigning? >> i think so. she is a great asset for donald trump, a wonderful person once you get to know her, she is really a delightful person. as beautiful as she is on the outside she is equally beautiful on the inside. maria: she came across what was i got to ask about donald trump's comments on the economy because this is really being debated across business right now. he made a bold prediction the us would go into recession if he loses in november. >> we are in a massive bubble, we have money that is the cheapest money we ever had but i can borrow all the money i want to borrow but if you are not really rich you can't borrow money. ever hear of cheap money nobody can get? we are sitting on a bubble. the stock market is very inflated. maria: that is a pretty bold call. he also said he will eliminate
7:07 am
$19 trillion in debt in eight years. i have a report for a responsible federal budget, they say absolutely debt, will reach $28 trillion by 2025 to save that much money cutting spending and achieving 16% annual growth. sounds like it is out there to eliminate the debt in eight years. >> the opportunity is to start buying down the debt in eight years and that is within reach. the opportunities are there. don't think that will take much structural change. the tax reform plan is an excellent one. i was in meetings yesterday discussing this issue, going over all the features, discussing all the aspects of it looking at requirements we could make that would make it even better.
7:08 am
when we finish this up and presented to congress in 2017 we have the opportunity to move the ball and we will see pretty dramatic growth, the kennedy tax cut and reagan tax-cut the first several years were very dramatic in the amount of growth we can get. we have so many things that have to be accomplished, structural tax reform has to be at the very highest part of the priority list. maria: just to be clear before we go on to another subject, donald trump said he won't touch social security but if you exclude social security, he is going to have to cut government spending by 93% in order to do what he is saying he is going to do. maria: you hit the nail on the head. we won't touch social security right now. those are the factors we have to
7:09 am
look at. we can't do anything until we get this economy back on its feet and running at the proper level. i do agree. i have been teaching this in my classes for several years that the equity markets because of quantitative easing are incredibly inflated and we are looking at potential with fragility of markets across the world and looking at oil, fascinated to watch your show this morning and all these factors are there. maria: gary, how are you? >> one of the reasons trump has caught on is he is a business person. making the recession based on what he sees at trump enterprises is he seeing signs that he would as a businessperson is preparing his own company for recession? >> it is a great question and absolutely right. he is a person that has the volume of business to look at those indicators. it may not be another slice of
7:10 am
the economy but it is for him. >> he told you and the rest of the team what he sees in the business, he mentioned it is hard to get a loan but one of the factors, what data it has he seen that tells him the recession is right around the corner? >> we are seeing slow growth, 1.38% in growth from gdp the last 11 years. what he sees is the psychological aspect of this and we don't talk enough about that. what people are doing with their money are not doing with their money this becomes a consumption economy, people are slowing their consumption are looking at other things, over stock of inventory is exactly what happens, we have a multitude of errors so we have to clear those inventories and that means layoffs so this leads to those
7:11 am
recessions. we have been in a flat recession for a long time but we don't get to the technical qualification of it. maria: this is sandra smith. i wanted to go back to trump and women. some favorability with women 3:1 according to us cbs poll but it is not a trump and women problem but republican party and women problem and hillary clinton is having a hard time with women as well. what is the strategy? he brought his wife out on the stage for the townhall with sean hannity and at 6:00 we had david drucker from the washington examiner saying he brought her out to sayings w say things everybody knows, when attacks he will punch backed we 10 times harder. david was making the point, we didn't need to hear that from her. could he be using her in a better way considering his strategy to attract women has not been working? >> we have to take a look as we
7:12 am
go through the campaign, we are focusing on every state, in two weeks we have state coming up, a lot has to be a shifted message as we go forward to make the economic case to men and women regardless of where they are and if we make that economic case, people will come around to that. what we find is every time you hear the word leadership mentioned that one of his rallies the place explodes. this is what they are looking for. donald trump is different. he is different. maria: finish your thought. >> at the end of the day this is what people are looking for. they are looking for people with the skills, he has created tens of thousands of jobs, he is a leader, a charismatic leader and people are looking for leadership and because we had a void of that for the last 30 years. maria: what about the
7:13 am
construction worker in vancouver hanging up the mexican flag across donald trump's vancouver hotel? he is sending a message to donald trump saying i am hanging this mexican flag on trump vancouver? >> i don't think donald trump is going to get involved in dealing with an individual employee on a project in vancouver, canada. that will be left to the site manager to deal with. maria: trump has not reached out to this construction worker? >> as far as i know. no one has talked to me about it. maria: good to have you on this program, appreciate your time. tune into the foxbusiness network for special coverage of the wisconsin primary kicking off tonight at 7:00 pm eastern, neil cavuto, lou dobbs tonight. a passenger jet burst into flames after colliding with another plane on the tarmac. details coming next and new developed on the panama papers, protesters filling the streets in iceland. calling on the prime minister to step down. we will be right back. the heirloom tomato.

7:34 am
u.s. secretary of commerce, good to see you now good to see you now thank you so much for joining us. >> i know back from cuba with president i want to ask about your trip did a, first on this story terms of treasurer new rules, we had treasury second jack lew on he was clear we do not like when companies leave america to find a better tax rate making it tougher why not go back to the tax code change the tax code rather than more prulz after more rules. >> well, right now, you know, we don't have a lot of flexibility to be able to change the tax code. and so what the president is doing is taking action, against folks who are trying to move their about headquarters for tax purposes. >> don't you this that i at the end of the day, the reason that they are leaving is because we've got highest tax rate in industrialed world rather than putting more rules on is it smarter to lower the corporate tax rate. >> how come so difficult to do is really the question. >> once you address the tax rate, obviously, the secretary
7:35 am
of treasury is person expert in this it is very complex, and there are winners and losers, so it is a hard thing to get through congress. and meantime, though the president's view we've got to take action we can't afford to have companies just decide i am going to move to a different country because of the shopping tax rates. >> let me ask you about cuba you just rushed from a trip with president obama, a lot going on in the world. while you were there tell us how trip was what your takeaways were. >> a historic trip it was terrific welcomed cube about an people lined streets excited to have a us here, visiting really, phenomenal what was amazing past year since the president changed our policy, and decided that we're going to engage is now you have direct flights to cuba, americans going to visit cuba, you've got direct mail, and direct toefl calls so you've got a lot more people to people he engagement going
7:36 am
on between united states and cuba. >> what did you make of -- of the comments once the president came back when we saw that you know the head of cabe is saying look, caused disruption, i know the people are happy they want to change in their lives blood test after you left, what happens then. >> there is a lot going on, what is what we've done we are administration both treasury department and department of commerce, have changed regulations, that are maybeing it easier for certain businesses, that are allowed under the current embargo to be able to do more business in cuba, and -- also, what we're being allowed is the ability for us to be able to have greater people to people engagements really important the president's fundamental premise is if we engage, rather than isolate cuba over time there will be change, and that is what is happening. >> let me ask you about engaging for example with somebody like a china. because recently we were
7:37 am
seeing chinese allocate money in u.s. we see that the group tried to break up deal between marriott and starwood your background is the hotel business, hyatt hotels talk to us about that, because i think that some people are a little worried that china is inquiring our hotels other industries that should be deemed off limits to foreigners. >> i think that is oversimplification i think we have to recognize that we live in a globalized economy american businesses making acquisitions all over the world chinese businesses, are making some acquisitions, here, we shouldn't be afraid of that what we should be doing is opening up our economy, that is why it is so important that we have new trade agreements, we want to make more opportunity for american businesses, as opposed to being afraid and pull in horns, in terms of he engagement. >> when chinese first acquired the waldorf-astoria president obama said he wouldn't stay there any more because rooms
7:38 am
are tapped. >> i wouldn't worry about one acquisition, of one hotel. what i would focus on, is frankly the what is our ability to do business around the world by u.s. corporations, and you know we have a policy in our country of encouraging foreign direct investment, you know the reason why? it is because it creates american jobs. so one of the things that we have done in our mix is create a program called select usa, we actually for the very first time united states reaches out, to 32 target countries including china japan, including australia, and others saying please to come, and invest in united states, please create jobs here. >> interesting, because this is exactly the issue that seems to be ripping apart the country, ripping apart like, in terms of the republicans democrats ripping apart republican party that is what impact of free trade is donald trump obviously talked about it a lot feeling u.s. always
7:39 am
on the disadvantage what is the angry people feel open borders you've got foreigners coming in taking american jobs, that is just the opposite what you just said. >> right, i -- what is happening, is what free trade does, is create the opportunity for american businesses and american workers to sell goods and services around the world, the trans pacific partnership is giving access for american companies to the fastest growing marketplace in the entire world middle class growing from 500 million to 3.2 billion in the next 15 years. this is a market we want our american companies to have ease access to, what is happening, is other countries are doing free trade agreements in the asia-pacific their companies have the ability to sell goods and services with no tariffs we are the disadvantage the other
7:40 am
thing is it also raises labor standards in our 11 partner countries as well as raistsdz the environmental standards make american workers more competitive. >> why do you think hillary clinton seems to be backing away from tpp is bernie sanders pushing her to somewhere she doesn't want go quote in june i don't think you are at all walking away from or ignoring the economic and commercial aspects of our pivot saying we want best possible deal for the american people i said that from the beginning would i jij the tpp on whether it proximate caused american worker whether it raises wages whether it protected our national security and that is exactly what donald trump says, it doesn't do. >> i disagree. i think tpp is good for national security and good for the american worker. and the reason is it is giving our companies access into the region, the more presence that we have, in the aish pacific region greater stability that there will be in that region, and we are being weld vietnam
7:41 am
wants malaysia wants us there if we do more business you've got to raise labor standards you've got to be more respectful of environment so that we are not our companies are not at a you disadvantage we don't have barriers to doing business in united states so -- >> that is the problem -- >> no. >> china has 10 industries that they deem as foreigners cannot own at all forget more than 49% not happening a foreign will not be allowed to acquire defense company in china, like oil, like food, do we have any protections around our to a very i. >> sure, we have a program if you are trying to buy a company that is critical to our national security that goes through a government review so the idea that that that we're not protecting our
7:42 am
critical industries is -- is a mis-- perception but what is important is to give access for our companies at so that we are on a level-playing field. so that we go take advantage of the fastest growing markets in the world or i workers can benefit from those opportunities -- >> actually, a really important point, because they've got 1.3 billion people for us to be selling to, do you think then, that we have a fair shot in china? >> america, is has a fair shot in china then? >> your china is a very complex market and one we have to work hard on, to make sure, that our companies have a fair shot at. >> we're not there yet. >> there is work to be done. >> good to see you thanks for joining us commerce secretary joining us a short break a lot more to come "mornings with maria" stay with us, talk about making an exit a flight attendant deploys emergency slide after landing safely on the ground, the bizarre details next.

8:34 am
voting for frontrunners for a long time in the primary process, that looks like it may not happen today with both cruz and bernie sanders leading in the polls. you know, on the democratic side, i think the margin is going to have a big impact on the perception of the race, but it won't change the delegate math. barack obama won by 17 points and only netted 10 delegates in terms of a gain so that's tough for bernie sanders, i don't think it changes the delegate math. on the republican side it can shake everything up up with a cruz victory and trump takes no delegates. if he can't win a congressional districts in northern wisconsin, i think that alters the perception of the race. sandra: i go back to newt gingrich, one thing to see a ted cruz victory in with is--
8:35 am
wisconsin and another to see a big win. are you predicting he's going to win by a landslide or edge out a bit. >> no, i'm not. i think the expectation is that he will win. i think the margin is unpredictable. we don't know what a republican primary looks like with the kind of big turnouts that the state has projected today. i mean, this is a republican primary unlike any we've had. if it follows true to form, then ted cruz's strength in southeastern wisconsin where the most republican votes are will carry the day. that's been the history of the primary, but when you've got three candidates and kasich is a little bit after wild card, he probably does draw more votes from cruz than from trump, despite donald trump's claim that he's taking his votes away, that's a wild card in terms of the margin. so, i think we should be cautious about, you know, projecting the size of the margin in this race, but i think at this point it would actually be an upset for donald

trump to win and you know, a trump victory in that regard would be huge for him. >> craig, from what you're seeing on the ground in wisconsin, who has got the better ground game, better organization, and how big of a difference is that m ted cruz particularly or bernie sanders on the democratic side. >> on the republican side i think that ted cruz does have-- he's kind of inherited some of the republican infrastructure and it's such a high turnout state it's not like iowa where it's about getting voters to the polls. i mean, people are very engaged and in politics here. they're going to turn out without having sort of a political machine driving them to the polls. on the democratic side there's clearly more intensity for bernie sanders. that helps him. you're going to see big differences of turnouts across the state with both parties with the sort of party, big democratic areas like madison
8:37 am
turning out in really crazy numbers and on the republican side, again in the republican suburbs outside milwaukee, big turnouts. the big question for donald trump, can he turn out his supporters in northern wisconsin where turnouts are lower. >> a few years ago, governor walker was expected to be a front runner, but supporting ted cruz, is there anything-- >> for a lot of republicans in the state, ted cruz was not their first choice, but they saw wisconsin as a place to stop donald trump and it's funny to see the whole establishment rallying around ted cruz who was in single digits in wisconsin back in november, but, you know, that can help. four years ago paul ryan endorsed mitt romney, the frontrunner when he came into the state, and campaigned with
8:38 am
him around the state and led to ryan's selection as romney's running mate and i think it help romney to win wisconsin and put santorum away. >> and you talked about his rise in wisconsin, are you surprised now to see cruz the favorite? a lot of people think that's a donald trump demographic. did trump goof? do people misunderstand wisconsin? >> there are a lot of white coll collar, and blue collar voters here and trump has done well, but his polling has been weak in wisconsin for many, many months, going back to last fall. his negatives have been higher in wisconsin than other places. his share of the vote has been lower, and whether that's demographic, whether that's cultural, whether that's political in the sense of, you know, some of the circumstances of this race, with scott walker being in it and donald trump
8:39 am
driving him out of the race. it's hard to know, but he didn't just run into trouble this wisconsin last week. he's been weak in wisconsin for some time. maria: do you think that trump was helped last night by his wife melania? >> i don't know. i mean, i think at this point so much has happened that that's probably not at the top of the list. maria: all right. we'll leave it there. good to see you. thanks for your insights this morning. good to be with you. maria: craig gilbert from wisconsin. sanctions from north korea threatening a deadly strike against the united states. professional sports adapting to the millennial consumer, how they're changing to try to attract fans. stay with us. ♪

>> welcome back, north korea issuing new threats against the united states as the latest propaganda video from state-run media claims that the hermit state will strike america, killing more citizens than 9/11. joining us now is fox news correspondent leah guy gabrielle. >> it's a mistake to underestimate any world leader when it comes to the united states. but put it in perspective. north korea saying that they'll kill more americans than 9/11 and that they have nuclear weapons pointed at the united states. you can't just underestimate what kim jong un is saying, but you have to consider what he's saying. he's saying this could be bigger than 9/11. 9/11 was essentially human brain guided missiles,
8:44 am
airplanes with people on board flying those missiles into targets. that's a huge difference from a country that analysts say doesn't necessarily have the technology at this point to be able to not only guide nuclear missiles to targets here in the u.s., but also what kind of technology, what kind of power they would have to actually hit those targets. don't underestimate it, but at the same time consider the source, also consider that there's a huge difference from what he's saying happened in the past and what he's saying could happen in the future. maria: did he say what the reason is, why he wants to be killing so many americans? should we request he a theory? >> you have the conflict in the region, there are eight weeks long, angers north korea and feels threatened. you have to consider that north korea is essentially starving its own people and at the same time has to justify why so much money is going towards this nuclear program, money going
8:45 am
towards its military program when kim jong un recently, analysts believe, gained 70 pounds in the last five years, they estimate 300 pounds, but his people are starving. in the meantime, north korea are saying that people have to give two pounds of rice to the state every month. so starving its people, building its military program, have to have some sort of justification and part of this is saving face. >> leah, it feels like that the u.s. and china have been cooperating and the president met with pipping, but is there more that china can do to squeeze korea. >> there's more for china to do. china doesn't want a united korean peninsula, that's not good for china in the grand scheme of things. china announced it's going to impose new sanctions and is a trading partner. china essentially props up
8:46 am
north korea. the reason that north korea could afford to do what it's been doing is because of resources from china when you look at the big picture. is china doing some? yes. should china be doing more? >> you wonder where his health is, too, kim jong un. not only tops 300 pounds, he's walking with a cane and he's in his early 30's, from gout. >> when you hear the sabre rattling from north korea, and it can seem frightening when we've been asleep at the wheel letting north korea develop nuclear technology. at the same time our intelligence agencies are watching the health of leaders around the world and looking at their faces and their weight, but we're watching through satellite imagery and watching through censors, deployed around the world, and through our military assets, what's happening in these countries. so don't be too afraid just yet. lea gabrielle, former navy pilot. thank you.

the in-game theaterics was not the only part of the tournament, in order to attract people they teamed with oculus to stream and with us is washington wizards owner, ted, good to see you. >> thank you. maria: during the break we were talking how exciting that game was and yet, when you look at ratings, the viewership, actually probably won't hold up for the excitement. >> well, sports, gratefully, still is the big convener of live audiences so it's very, very valuable as a media property, but it's getting harder and harder as kids graduate from college and growing up in a wireless world and don't have tv's in your dorm. if you want a sobering experience, walk around the college dorm, they have ipads
8:52 am
and don't have tv anymore. live supports, very, very important, we saw bwhat the nfl did, moving to twitter. that was good for twitter to be able to stream those games. at the same time, yahoo! streamed a game last year and got 2, 3 million people watching it a decent kind of cable. tv rating and amazon bought twitch and they have e-gaming tournaments and they get 20 to 25 million people watching it. so there's a whole new world that's developing and you know, we in the media industry and the sports industry have to be cognizant of it. maria: what are you learning that the millennials want. sandra: they want it live, they want it now, streaming. attracting the fans in general to the games? >> well, millennials are about experiences so you really have to program in game, you really have to make it interactive so that if they are watching on their ott kind of platform.
8:53 am
maria: over the top? >> over the top. less and less young people graduate from college and replicate their dorm experience in a rental apartment and not signing up for cable. dagen: is the problem they're not playing sports when they're young and why isn't it good enough to get the kids watching and going to games? >> last night was probably very, very good for tbs and cbs and ncaa. even though the audience is down, it still probably had the best rating in its time period and to be able to bring people to watch something live it still very, very important. maria: i want to point out, matt, the nfl said thursday night football is going to be streamed on twitter. twitter stock is up 3.3% on this news so this is also obviously impacting the stock market. >> that's good news for twitter, which i think they can use. are you getting millennials to the game?
8:54 am
and is it frankly too expensive? we've watched ticket prices go up. we've all planned those games and how to get the family out. is that a problem? >> for a hockey team we've been sold out for eight years in a row. dagen: awesome. >> good teams. dagen: you rock. >> creating an issue for us, the only way to get tickets is on the secondary market and they really hike up prices. that is an overall concern. if they can't afford to come to a game and aren't able to watc the game on tv, that's what they end up doing is going to bars and watching it, you know, in a very communal kind of setting. so i think the challenge for all of us is one to have other sports, we just bought an afl, an indoor football league team and we own a wnba team in d.c. and we'll try to use those teams and other sports create ott networks and try to find a
8:55 am
blend between streaming and in arena to be more relevant to young people. maria: today you don't have to go to a bar to watch on a big screen. you've got the big screen and technology at home. you don't need to go to the stadium. >> that's probably one of the big issues facing the nfl is their audience gets older and older, it's just more convenient, more comfortable to watch at home on a big screen. >> and it's a tv sport, too, the nfl. you can actually see a lot more and learn a lot more watching tv than you sometimes can-- >> you want to take it further than that and have helmet cam, right? are you going to do that? >> i think data is going to have a lot of the next generation entertainment and literally every action, every heartbeat, every step that a player takes will be measured and one day you'll be able to not only do fantasy games, but you'll be able to place bets on each individual play, each individual movement, and that will really, really amp up the

engagement. it also creates new revenue streams. maria: we've spoken to zebra, right, put semiconductor chips in the football players bad? >> why can't we just have a love of the sports? >> you can. people just want more and more information. >> data, data. >> we were the first nba and nhl team to use virtual reality and it's really spectacular now. and oculus shipped last week and that will start to be socially accepted, but when you put on those goggles and you're in the game, what we let our fans experience and let our sponsors experience, but it's the greatest teaching imaginable and i think you'll see virtual reality work through the health care industry and it's the best way to present and have the student, have the young person retain that information. >> you're right. with those goggles, you feel
